    Dear Julie and Family,
    My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. I’m sure you have wonderful memories that will live on forever. When my dad past a friend wrote me, “Death leaves a heartache no one can heal…but LOVE leaves a memory no one can steal.” How true this is! Your mom is blessed to have so many wonderful children by her side! My deepest sympathy, Diane Buttrey
